05:22:09:12 Off is an album by Industrial/EBM group Front 242. It was released by Sony on 2 November 1993 (see 1993 in music). The album's title is a simple substitution cipher for the word "evil"; where each letter is represented by its equivalent numerical position in the alphabet.


The album was unusual in that it primarily features a female voice, that of Christine "99" Kowalski, on vocals, with Jean-Luc De Meyer only appearing on a few tracks.
